, the cold war back? >> basically. this is a very hawkish wing when george w. bush a decade ago said he looked into putin's eye and saw a good soul, they didn't believe it then. >> do they miss their teddy bear? >> this is an opportunity to take it farther. >> here's more guys, jump in here john. rick santorum, jim demint, my god, jim demint, and john bolton, who can't wait to get back in power, talking about the global terrorist alert as an excuse to hit the president. they said he's being weak because he put us on watch. let's watch him. >> i think it's really a consequence of the policies of this administration. if you look at benghazi and what happened, we haven't seen anything from this administration really go after the people who were responsible or the network behind it. and i'm sure if you're looking at it from a terrorist perspective, you say, well, here's a administration that's pulling back, that's timid. >> our attempt to placate parts of the world, reset, whether it's russia or somewhere else, are clearly not working, and the perception of weakness in this administration i
, by the way, there were lots of republicans, over 60 who supported a minimum wage increase when george bush proposed it the last time we raised it back in 2007. so this is not an issue that is that foreign to republicans, in no small part but it just polls through the roof. people recognize that a wage floor of $7.25 not a very low wage floor in our economy, but very low by measures of other advanced economies is something that is popular because, a, it doesn't have any budgetary implications. and b, it helps working people get reconnected to a growing economy that has largely left them behind. >> you know, you're right. because when you look at the polling, polls show raising minimum wage is really hugely popular. gallup poll found 71% of americans support it, including 75% of moderates, and even 54% of conservatives. and the fight for higher minimum wage goes all the way back to the first march on washington. did you know, jared, the organizers wanted a national minimum wage to, quote, give all americans a decent standard of living. this is in the '63 march. they wanted it to be $2 an hou
president george w. bush weighed in on the president ace options in syria. let's take a listen to what he said. >> the president has got a tough choice to make. if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. he's an ally of iran and he's made mischief. >> oh, e.j. mr. assad has made mischief according to former president george w. bush. >> i don't agree with him much but i'm not a fan of mr. assad. everybody agrees this is a brutal regime. has been going back to the time of his father. of course, the question is what do we do about it? the question has always been asked. there are a lot of brutal regimes in the world. when do we choose to act? when we talk about expecting what john kerry is going to say, if indeed we're acting, i expect him to go back to that very morally rooted language he used a couple of days ago saying we've got no choice but to act when they use chemical weapons. but that still won't explain what the strategy is and i hope the rest of his statement is involved in explaining what we're going to do

presidents. spotty, a king charles, who was born in 19289 under president george bush 41 and then had the good fortune to return again with george w. bush when he became president in 2001. so two presidents for that dog. however the most famous by far of all the white house is fal la, franklin roosevelt's is scottish terrier and mgm, the movie company made a movie about him called fala at hyde park in technicolor. the only first dog to be honored with a statue in a presidential memorial down in washington near the tidal basin. look at that big dog. next up, maine's republican governor paula page is in hot water today for allegedly claiming in a speech at eight private fund-raiser that president obama "hates white people." while the event was closed to the press, word of the remark leaked to the portland press newspaper which confirmed it with two other republican lawmakers who were present at the time. according to the herald, "lepage talked how obama could have been the best president ever if he had highlighted his by racial ever. he said the president hasn't done than because he hat

w. bush -- >> in washington -- >> george w. bush had nancy pelosi as speaker of the house in 2007 and 2008, go back and look at what george w. bush did. when 80% of americans and probably 95% of people in the house were against the surge in iraq, you know what george bush said, we're going to do a surge in iraq. guess what? he got it through. he pushed it through. >> he had a relationship. >> he brow beat them. >> he talked to her. >> they talked to them, but they also pushed it through. it's not easy. >> you think that was his relationships or cheneys? >> i think cheney said things to members of the united states senate that did not -- >> alex is mad. >> coming up on "morning joe" -- >> what did he say to leahy? go -- yourself. i love that guy. i am not a shamed to say i love dick cheney. >> whoa. >> does that jar you too? >> excuse me? >> listen, you're jarred by all of these great americans i love. let me tell you something -- >> oh, my god. i just want to get to a break. >> do what you want to do. i will not sit here while you tear down the united states of america. j gentleme
? do you intervene. >> laura: i didn't campaign there giving a big speech saying that george bush was the big bully and i was going to turn the page and it was going to be hope, love and rainbows for the whole world. that wasn't me campaigning. we have a president of the united states that came in under a big promise of bolstering u.s.' image around the world and our approval around the world is going down not going up. and the place place is in chaos over the president to say it's complicated. it's a weak response it shows his response is nonsensical. >> what's the response. >> lindsey graham and john mccain is right for us to send $1.3 billion over there when they are using that money to kill people in the streets, that probably isn't such a good thing to keep doing. that's one idea but, you know, i'm not president. >> well, but if you take that money away and destabilize the military over there, we're talking about a massive country on the border with israel. ask the israelis what they think about us continuing to support the military. >> laura: you mean, it's difficult but tha
. when george bush involved us and the supposedly illegal wars in iraq and afghanistan, trampling the constitution as we heard incessantly from democrats, he sought and got in the afghan war and in the iraq war a debate in congress and a vote of authorization. and now what we're hearing from the democrats with utter shameless hypocrisy, this administration is not required to do it. look, the main question that boehner was asking is, is all of this to send a message, to which i would say if you want to send a message, call western union. you don't use tomahawk missiles and engage in war. war is a serious thing. that's why it should be debated in the congress. >> the bush administration also had a united nations resolution as well. juan? >> i think it is very important to say for all of the verbiage we just saw from speaker boehner, speaker boehner, you know, senate majority reid, neither is calling for vote or asking for this to happen. all that you read off, there was no request for speaker boehner for an actual vote. if you can imagine a debate in congress over u.s. military acti
is just a continuation of president george w. bush in the foreign policy realm where the president, this president is just continuing the hawkish policies of the bush administration. and then the next minute, they're claiming that the president is weak in foreign policy showing weakness to our enemies and yet, completely forgetting about all the drone strikes that the president is doing, and the other thing about what jim demint is doing which i find rather callous is would he rather the president of the united states not close the embassies and make our -- and make american personnel targets for a terrorist attack? i wonder what they would be saying if the president followed through on the advice that they're giving him. >> you mean another benghazi. >> yeah, exactly. >> benghazi, benghazi. right on cue, rick santorum not a foreign policy expert accused the president of being timid. i love the personifications, timid. muscular foreign policy. they turn on to some school yard kind of event. let's watch. >> i think it's really a consequence of the policies of this administration. i
of the -- you could -- does the ghost of tony blair and george w. bush and saddam hussein hung heavily over parliament? >> absolutely. in all the -- not just skepticism, almost cynicism about the what the government says about the intelligence was the back drop. it's larger than that. i think something has been going on for years, if not decades in europe, gradual weakening of commitment to defense, preoccupation of -- >> what do you make of o-- ow hm france saying we need a political solution. i would love france to come forward with this magic political solution. this is like richard nixon's secret plan to end vietnam in 1968. there's not one. >> exactly. there's not going to be a political solution to syria. syria sill in the relatively early phases over a prolonged civil war. what's interesting about britain, a country that distanced itself from europe over economic issues and now distancing itself from the united states over strategic issues. this is small britain, small europe. we've ended the era -- >> why is that? how does europe find itself in a position or britain where it's separ
george w. bush was in office, i know a lot of people on the left made fun of him, but they should have. he took almost as much as four times off. >> the president took more vacation than any modern president. >> right. >> he made 77 trips just to his texas ranch, spending all or part of 490 days. i mean, so vacations are fine as long as they're in texas. >> right. and can i also say about martha's vineyard, because have i relatives that live there. anybody who wants to call it elitist is crazy because it's one of the few american vacation spots like summer colonies that has had a tradition of being diverse. black people have been going there for vacation since the 1800s. and i happen to like that our commander in chief is living a life as a leader and trying to lead by example and showing, hey, black people, white people, all kinds of people can vacation together. >> it is an eclectic place, but very much diverse. >> right. >> and to be fair, presidents work on vacations. >> of course they do. >> but i don't remember the right getting upset when this moment happened back in 2002. >> ok
vituperative those times were. and there were people on the left who aimed some of that at george w. bush. admittedly, it's spun out of control now, because these folks are in control of the republican party. so it's at a fevered pitch now. but we've got this mad cycle going where each party -- yes, go ahead. >> but let me challenge that nancy pelosi had an opportunity to jump on george w. bush in the same regard. look at what she did here. she didn't play that game. she shot it down right away. i'm not going to get into delegitimization. let's watch nancy. she did not let them play this game. let's watch her, please. i'm sorry. >> okay, go ahead. >> she has pledged as a speaker she would giver the republicans rights like allowing them to introduce amendments to bills. but she may have trouble reigning in the democrats' appetite for revenge there has already been talk of multiple investigations and impeachment of the president. >> no. impeachment is off the table. >> and that's a pledge? >> well, it's a pledge, yes, it's a pledge. of course it is. it is a waste of time. >> so that's compl

was a u.s. senator. flashback to 2007. >> george bush and dick cheney must hear loud and clear from the american people and the congress, you do not have our support and you do not have our authorization to launch another war. >> i want to make it clear. i want to make it clear to the president. if he takes this nation to war in iran, without congressional approval, i will make it my business to impeach him. >> obama didn't know when he was criticizing bush. he didn't know how the world worked. he didn't know there were a bunch of bad guys. demanding that bush go through congress. demanding that bush go through the united nations. demanding that there be a coast guard. >> the war drums continue to beat louder and louder in the middle east. >> u.s. navy warships are standing by. they are waiting order from the president. >> the syrians have said that if struck, they will counter strike and downer attack on tel aviv. a city which they slay burn. >> it is pretty obvious the syrian army used chemical weapon. the president called that a red line so he feels we have to retaliate. >> what
possibly go wrong in eight years of george bush? >> my producer just coughed up a hairball. >>sorry. >>just be grateful current tv doesn't come in "smell-o-vision" >> oh come on! the sweatshirt is nice and all, but i could use a golden lasso. (vo)only on current tv. >> announcer: starting live on free speech tv on september 3rd, learn more at billpressshow.com. this is the "bill press show." >> bill: hey, that's right. good reminder. 33 minutes after the hour now that august 15 is our last day on current tv. progressive talk radio continues. no interruption. full time all the way through. we'll take a two-week hayatous on television and we'll pop up again on free speech tv on september 3rd. go to freespeech.org and the good news is you'll be able to watch us on television if you have a satellite dish, on two different networks. dish network or directv. and you'll be able to watch us online as well and it is all there at freespeech.org. >> yes, indeed. >> bill: we'll continue to come at you both video and audio and look forward to keeping in touch with you and continuing to be part of the pr

[ laughter ] caller: i went away from the t.v. for a moment and i was told that someone who shares my heritage was talking about certain things, and i don't know what to say. it made me laugh like hillary clinton. i did the ha ha ha laugh. stephanie: yes. caller: for the first time, i think in my nearly a decade with you guys, i'm speechless. >> are you saying that guy was a turkey? caller: yes. ok, if i can get my. stephanie: turkey? caller: selfishly, it's a good thing, not only considering he played the clips at the town hall and tea party monster is coming back to bite these people. if they've got to worry about being tea bagged at every little thing and elect a representative like the one that's been defeated, like the chr
've got a dream that joe walsh pays his child support, but on a completely bill o'reilly said that george w. bush wasn't invited, in fact he was invited, as was his fare, as was speaker john boehner, as well as eric cantor. so what gives here? >> the fact that the other shoe has dropped, and we know the real deal, let's see if they're equally aggressive about the as is of these noteworthy republicans. the fact is the civil rights movement at its broadest was a nonpartisan affair. martin luther king jr. and the other leaders of that particular march were invested in the radical transformation of america according to principles of democracy. if you were a supporter, whether libertarian, whether you were republican or democratic, then you could participate freely. the point is these republicans units that they are antitheyically opposed to every moment and gesture of black freedom that was articulated yesterday, and more broadly about progressive realization of rights for gale and lesbians and for the environment, for those who embrace those who are so-called illegal immigrants. this is a da
served as the chief economist of the council of economic advisers under president george bush. manuel pastor is the professor of sociology in american studies and ethnicity at the university of southern california. he's also the director of their program on environmental and region aleck bity -- regional equity, and for our purposes today most importantly, codirector of the center for the study of immigrant integration. and he's published a couple of reports recently that he'll bring to light today about the importance of citizenship. jose antonio vargas is a pulitzer prize-winning journalist, film maker and the founder of define american, a campaign that seeks to elevate the immigration conversation. he is another profile in courage. in 2011 in "the new york times" magazine, he publicly revealed himself as undocumented and shared his life story of being raised by his grandparents in the u.s. from the age of 12 when he left his birthplace in the philippines. he has since become a national immigrants' rights advocate and leader for comprehensive immigration reform activist including th

on the health of former president george w. bush. he's back home resting one day after doctors surgically inserted a stint to ease a blocked artery. it was discovered during a routine physical. the president's doctors say he is doing great. >>> and it wasn't all terror and big brother with president obama on "the tonight show" last night. jay leno couldn't let him go without asking the president about his once-bitter rival turned confidant hillary clinton. the two had lunch last week at the white house. >> we had a great time. she had that post-administration glow. you know, when folks leave the white house. like two weeks later, they look great. but it was wonderful conversation. you know, by the end of my first term, you know, we had become genuinely close. i could not have more respect for her. she was a great secretary of state. very, very proud of the way she did it. >> did you notice her measuring the drapes or anything like that? >> keep in mind, she's been there before. >> that's true. >> she doesn't have to measure them. >> meanwhile, day two of deliberations in the whitey bulger
vacation. last president george w. bush, he would spend a lot of time back here in texas at his ranch in crawford. you can't throw rocks from a glass house. you can't criticize one president for taking time off when our past presidents have always done so. stick to the issues. that's what's going to give voters hope to vote for you instead of just being negative as clarence was pointing out. >> thank you both for your time this evening. >> thanks, rev. >> thank you. >>> coming up, a sitting member of congress just invited this disgraced rodeo clown wearing a president obama mask to perform in his state. pathetic. that's coming up. >>> we're back with a pause from the political battles of the day. a time to rest, relax, and recharge. that's right. it's time for the "politicsnation" summer break. and at number three, we go to china. where they just celebrated valentine's day. and how about this kodak moment? a new kind of coffee break. couples visiting a cafe had their photo taken when they ordered a latte. and then it came out in the foam. pretty cool. wonder if they'll ever see this s
saw that during the financial crisis when the choice of george w. bush, whose economic record was maligned by democrats for quite a long time, turned out to be a vital partner with president obama in trying to stop the financial crisis and get the recovery going. so we are not making too big a deal of it. the only thing that may be out of proportion is the speculation to knowledge ratio, because it's a very small number of people, the president and a few people very close to him who really know his thinking, although i talked to a couple of people on the larger obama team today who continue to think that the odds are pretty strong that the president will in fact pick larry summers despite this flak. >> can i ask you, john, why -- why larry summers? if you look at his record, he blocked the regulation of derivatives when he was serving with president clinton. he advocated an appeal of glass-steagall, he pushed for a smaller stimulus in 2009 and resigned from harvard over sexist comments questioning women's aptitude in math and science. you compare that to janet yellin who warne
, electronic. this particular judge was appointed by george w. -- originally a george w. bush appointee, put on the courts by roberts, who's very friendly to this stuff. we have to take a big step back. you can still have the debate over whether you want really invasive surveillance of all of your electronic communications. what we learned this week, and what i think people have to get their arms around, is that we have the government lying to the very court that's supposed to oversee this, misleading that court over massive surveillance. so we haven't had the honest debate. we're finally getting little dribs and drabs it of it. you have everyone from mcconnell to president obama basically leaving us with an impression for years this was all overseen by the court, overseen as if it was okay. in fact, the court was waving a flag saying, this is wrong, this is unconstitutional, and don't lie to us. >> regarding that, you know, oversight by the court, to me that is the most troubling part. not only are there concerns over the points you raised, but the fact of the matter the court has said they
actually worked for john mccain and george w. bush described as intellectual little dishonest. how would you describe his answer? >> it's absolutely factually dishonest. they require the house first and and then we've heard that the house has the votes but just to the go back to tom coburn for a minute because this is president really is a master of turning the other cheek in a way i can't speak for you or goldie but i don't think i'd be capable of because remember two years, exactly two years ago, tom coburn also spoke up to defend his friend, barack obama, and he said that the president didn't want to destroy america. he just wanted to encourage dependency because that worked so well for him as an african-american male. this man who was president the harvard law review. so again and again, tom coburn pulls out this friend card. and then uses it to completely undermine the president. and he knows better. also in that -- i listened to that hour long tape. he calls for a second constitutional convention. he says no, don't shut down the government over obama care. why don't you use the deb
world war. and the change really comes with president george w. bush's two appointees, chief justice roberts and justice alito, who are number one and number two in their propensity to vote for business in all of the justices who have served in that time period. so this is a court which is an open door for business interests. >> right. and that's something that the data bears out. whether people think that's good or bad, they can debate at home. dahlia lithwick of slate and adam liptak of the "new york times," thank you both for spending some time with us tonight. coming up, one of the people who says donald trump's trump university ripped him off. will join us to talk about new york state's new lawsuit against 34r tru mr. trump. >>> and why do people keep thinking golf solves everything? they really do. some people say that. we will be talking about the politicians who say playing golf is the secret to governing and why they're wrong. that's up next. she loves a lot of the same things you do. it's what you love about her. but your erectile dysfunction - that could be a question of b
